Re: Still going strong

Talking to a friend who went Canon his original camera has had to be binned because the sensor went pixilated. The original Oly sensors are still giving super results.
The only problem I have ever had was with my E300, on which the shutter finally failed at 58,000, not bad as the quoted was 25,000.
Quality indeed.
The picture tells the story, great when you have a bad memory.DW.

Re: Still going strong

My first digicam was the Canon Powershot G2 and cost me 650
Saw one on ebay a while back for 15
I'll be keeping it for sentimental reasons

Re: Still going strong

My Pany G3 fully boxed with spare batteries only sold for 75 about a year ago and was only a couple of years old, my G5 wouldn't sell so I traded it in and only got 100 for it, fully boxed, spare batteries etc. Digital camera bodies lose value very quickly.
